The Bombardier Global 6000 aircraft was created to accommodate the needs of the most sophisticated and discerning travellers. Just like the world of cars and boats, there are different classes of aircraft: from the entry level propeller-driven Cessnas where pilots under training learn the basics of airmanship through to multi-engined commercial airliners, getting from A to B in the air can take many different forms. Even the ultimate form of luxury aviation - the private jet - has many different options. So if the Cessna 172 is the reliable Renault Twingo of the skies, what's the Bentley Flying Spur?
The Bombardier Global 6000 fits the bill, it offers more cabin space than any other equivalent private jet and can fly routes like Moscow to LA non-stop with eight passengers at Mach 0.85, or 85 per cent of the speed of sound. Uncompromising throughout, from the superiority of its leading edge flight deck environment, to the sheer tranquility of its aft stateroom, the Global 6000 is the ultimate all-around performance business jet, designed to keep the world in the palm of your hand.
Accommodating up to 16 passengers, the palatial interior is sure to impress even the most sophisticated of travelers. Utilization of the latest in avionics and technology coupled with countless amenities insure that the Global 6000 is perfectly suited to be the aerial headquarters of your business or your personal playground. The Global 6000 is choosen by those who conquer the world in style.
The Global 6000 (formerly marketed as the Global Express XRS) is an improved version of the original aircraft, (announced on October 6, 2003 during the NBAA Convention at Orlando, Florida) offering higher cruise speed, increased range, improved cabin layout and lighting. The range increase is achieved by addition of a 1,486 lb (674 kg) fuel tank at the wing root. The Global Express 6000 entered service in early 2006. The unit price is estimated to be $US45.5 million. It takes 15 minutes less to fuel the Global 6000 than the original model thanks to improved computer systems and mechanical refinements.
